Funding agreements l.jpg
Funding Agreements

  • The type of funding agreement will depend on the type of organisation.

  • Further Education Corporations who are successful will be funded under the terms of their financial memorandum.

  • Other public bodies such as local authorities will be funded under conditions of funding.

  • All other organisations will be expected to agree to the LSC standard contract for education and training.

  • All organisations responding to these ITT’s will be taken to have accepted the appropriate terms and conditions of funding appropriate to their type of organisation

Funding requirements l.jpg
Funding Requirements

  • Additional requirements in relation to each programme are set out in the relevant funding guidance which form part of the terms and conditions of funding

  • Organisations are advised to visit the LSC website to see the appropriate Funding Guidance for the programme for which they are tendering. This will include details of funding rates for qualifications and other programme delivery requirements

Agreeing funding levels l.jpg
Agreeing funding levels

  • Funding levels of contract to be agreed as part of contract clarification and where appropriate the national funding formula will be applied.

  • New providers tendering for provision funded using the demand led funding system will soon be able to download a funding calculation programme to support undertake modelling of potential contract award levels. Check on the LSC website for more information

Procurement policy l.jpg
Procurement Policy

We believe that a sensible balance of commissioning and tendering will:

  • help to secure the provision we need

  • allow new entrants to the market where they add value and choice;

  • and, simultaneously, enable good providers to grow

  • The LSC introduced the e-tendering system in February 2007, because it is quicker, there is a robust audit trail, it is more environmentally friendly, and is more secure.

  • Procurement policy19 l.jpg
    Procurement Policy

    • As a public body, the LSC has to follow the public procurement rules and must ensure that the process is open, fair and transparent.

    • We will issue 3 year contracts (where appropriate) that will be extendable to 5 years subject to performance. Contracts can be varied up and down in value as a result of reconciliation and performance.

    • Contracts will have start date flexibility to allow provision to start when appropriate (i.e. do not all have to be 1st August).

    Slide20 l.jpg


    Time deadlines will be specified on each ITT

    We advise providers to submit early

    Slide21 l.jpg

    • Tenders due 6 weeks from ITT

      • Using fair, transparent and robust scoring framework.

    • Contract Award panels will agree each contract offer against original tender specification.

    • Local partnership team may carry out “contract clarification” with relevant providers - this will also be used to agree contract levels.

    • Contracts awards expected from end of June 2008.

    Pqq s l.jpg

    PQQ’s closed on 3 March 2008

    • PQQ Evaluation completed.

    • Fair and equal consideration given to all tenders.

    • Consistent process across all LSC regions.

    • 1746 number of providers successful at this PQQ (4).

    • 998 had already qualified at PQQ in September 07.

    Skills for Jobs

    Regional requirements skills for jobs l.jpg
    Regional Requirements – Skills for Jobs

    Skills for jobs is the umbrella term used by the LSC to cover a range of pre-employment training and skills interventions. It includes:

    • Short, job specific and more responsive to employer needs and flexible in duration

    • Delivered broadly under the skills for jobs umbrella

    • Closer working with Jobcentre Plus (JCP) locally

    • Progression opportunities into Train to Gain and sustainable employment

    The london context l.jpg
    The London context…

    The London Skills & Employment Board (LSEB) chaired by the Mayor, set out 4 key challenges in its consultation document:

    Challenge 1: A fundamental change to the employment and skills support available for Londoners

    Challenge 2: An ambitious new Employer Programme for London employers

    The london context40 l.jpg
    The London context…

    Challenge 3: A new level of responsiveness from London’s learning and skills providers to ensure that skills provision is focused on meeting genuine needs

    Challenge 4: An integrated skills and integrated employment infrastructure.

    London lsc key priorities l.jpg
    London LSC key priorities…

    Priority 1: Improving the educational opportunities for all Londoners

    Key challenges for London

    There is a mismatch between the jobs available in the labour market and the skills levels of residents, with 40 per cent not having a level 2 and 14 per cent having no qualifications;

    Approximately 900,000 residents (19 per cent) have literacy levels below level 1; 2.3m (48 per cent) have numeracy levels below level 1; and 600,000 have ESOL needs.

    London lsc key priorities42 l.jpg
    London LSC key priorities…

    Priority 3: Integrate skills within economic development and employment

    Key challenges for London

    More than half London’s boroughs (18 of 33) feature in the top 30 per cent most deprived in the 2004 Indices of Multiple Deprivation;

    London skills for jobs priorities l.jpg
    London skills for jobs priorities

    Under the Comprehensive Spending Review, London Region LSC secured some additional flexibilities around adult provision to fund skills for jobs type provision over the next three years.

    In 08/09 we will, through negotiated commissioning fund £9.3m worth of ESP provision and approx £20m under open tender under the skills for jobs banner, which falls into 6 categories.

    Our skills for jobs commissioning requirements l.jpg
    Our skills for jobs commissioning requirements

    In 08/09 we are looking for skills for jobs bids under the following 6 categories:

    • Local Employment Partnerships;

    • Skills for jobs for homelessness adults;

    • Skills for jobs for ex-offenders/offenders in the community;

    • Skills for jobs for learners with learning difficulties and or disabilities;

    • ESOL for professional migrants; and

    • Skills for jobs for higher level skills (part L2/3)

    Skills for jobs funding l.jpg
    Skills for jobs funding…

    Key features of skills for jobs provision l.jpg
    Key features of skills for jobs provision

    • Under LEPs the LSC is the JCP preferred supplier of pre-employment training;

    • In London we are looking to award contracts across 6 JCP districts (not coterminous to LSCs);

    • Provision needs to be flexible and responsive to meet employer needs, bespoke or SSC endorsed sector employability toolkits;

    • Opportunities to develop links with TtG and sustainable job outcomes

    Key funding features l.jpg
    Key funding features…

    There is a total unit cost of £1500 per participant based on the following funding methodology:

    • 50% of funding on the completion of at least one substantial engagement activity(ies) as set out in the Individual Learning Plan/Job/Skills Plan;

      25% of funding on entry into a job within 6 weeks; and

    • 25% of funding on remaining in sustainable job (13 weeks or more)

    Local employment partnerships l.jpg
    Local EmploymentPartnerships

    What are local employment partnerships (LEPs)?

    LEPs are a new ground breaking initiative of giving 250,000 Jobcentre Plus (JCP) overlooked and priority customers the opportunity to acquire the skills needed to get into work and to develop those skills to stay and progress in work. It is a partnership approach between JCP and employers, supported by DWP, DIUS and the LSC.

    Integrated employment and skills ies trials l.jpg
    Integrated Employment andSkills (IES) Trials

    London is expected to host at least IES Trials from autumn 2008 commissioned by DWP and DIUS. In addition some trialling of screening and diagnostics for the Adult Advancement and Careers Service are likely to be layered over the IES Trial areas.

    Successful bidders under skills for jobs ITTs in London will be expected to actively participate in IES Trials as and when they are rolled out
